Sheeps Tor

Grabbed the opportunity today to nip out for a quick walk up to Sheeps Tor. Parking at Norsworthy Bridge and walking part way round Burrator and heading up the steep side of Sheeps Tor. Not a great deal of mileage involved but the steepness meant a few pauses for breath were required! Then it was off to the Burrator Inn at Dousland for a well earned roast!

Ready for the climb
